This is Jamie Oliver’s talk at TED about nutrition in the US and the world and about the need for education on this subject.
This is a really inspirational talk and a great example of multiple intelligences. Jamie tells us at the end that he is dyslexic. I wonder if some of his primary teachers ever thought they would see him giving a talk at TED all these years later and what a fine talk he gives! He hasn’t let dyslexia stop him. What a clever man and so down-to-earth! A real inspiration!
